Beautiful museum in the centre of Lima, focused on Peruvian Precolombian cultures
This museum provides an excellent chronological overview of the various Pre-Colombian cultures of Peru, also going back 5000 years. Their exquisitely painted pottery demonstrates the significant differences between the cultures, from the finely decorated Nasca vases of 2000 years old to the more crudely created, yet much younger, Huari pots. Paracas textiles and Moche and Lambayeque funary ornaments, stome sculptures and metal figurines, there are few collections more varied that the one in the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History.
Great place to while away a couple of hours, with far to many top pieces to show here, so this is just a small sample of my favourites.
